Matt and I both use the Simple Calendar app on our phones to see upcoming events. And we both commented that our calendars are blank and seemed to be malfunctioning.

But instead, I think the calendar is just saying have a good trip!!!

We’ve been waiting for this week for ages! I don’t think anyone is more excited at this point than Matt, who needs a break from his 6-day a week job. He’s so excited he got up at 5:30 to run so he’d feel nice and limber on the 5+ hour car ride. When I woke up at 6:30 I was surprised to find him not in bed!

I made overnight oats for an easy breakfast for both of us (and used up all of our dairy and fruit!)

1/3 cup milk, greek yogurt, oats, chia seeds, pinch salt, half banana, cinnamon plus local granola and Reginald’s Cashew-Nilla on top!

For those of you not yet to freedom, the weekend is almost here!

That is one good looking bowl! I may be inspired to try this overnight oat thing. Cold oats scare me a bit, but it looks too good to not try.

Love the oats. Always been the first meal in the morn. for me. My favorite is Oats, blueberries, crushed walnuts and to top it off… 1/2 cup espresso! That’s my morning boost! lol…

Love the site, great pics!

24 Amanda @flecksofgreen May 24, 2012 at 9:21 am

I love “kitchen-sinking” any meal. What I mean by that is throwing in everything but the kitchen sink because you are: 1. getting rid of things 2. Going on Vacation or 3. Find just crumbs in a number bozes or bags of cereal/granola/bread products. I think I probably “kitchen sink” my oats more times than I’m willing to admit lol
